Hi,
Don't forget to track Santa again this year Posted Image
Here: http://www.noradsanta.org/en/track.html

Background:
http://www.noradsanta.org/en/why.html

"For more than 50 years, NORAD and its predecessor, the Continental Air Defense Command (CONAD) have tracked Santa's flight. The tradition began in 1955 after a Colorado Springs-based Sears Roebuck & Co. advertisement misprinted the telephone number for children to call Santa. Instead of reaching Santa, the phone number put kids through to the CONAD Commander-in-Chief's operations "hotline." The Director of Operations at the time, Colonel Harry Shoup, had his staff check the radar for indications of Santa making his way south from the North Pole. Children who called were given updates on his location, and a tradition was born."

Thank you for the reminder. The 5 year old grand-daughter is at my house for Christmas.

Later today we will let her start tracking Santa's progress.

When I was a child tracking was shown on tv.

How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook

I'll make sure I watch it in the future.

Ok, so this year Google came out with a Santa Tracker. Right now it shows that he is on his way to Dartmouth, Nova Scotia at this time.

NORAD's Santa Tracker puts Santa in Caribbean right now, about to arrive in San Fernando, Trinidad and Tobago.

Personally I think NORAD is more accurate-THEY have been tracking a lot longer than Google and have the latest equipment needed to tell us exactly where Santa is.

Now if we could get the 5 year old to go to sleep so Santa will stop at my house I would be a very happy Nana.
